Unformatted text preview: by Pseudomonas . This product causes the ADP-ribosylation of translation factor EF-2, producing ADP-ribosyl-EF-2. The effect of this enzymatic activity is the loss of host cell protein synthesis capability. This mechanism is identical to that produced by diphtheria toxin. • Also, a protein called exoenzyme S is another ADP-ribosyltransferase, transferring the ADP-ribose from NAD to other proteins (not EF-2). • Pseudomonas has an antiphagocytic polysaccharide slime layer and many strains produce pigments, some which are fluorescent....
